Our modern diet of convenience foods and fast-food resturants is what killing us in the long run. Add to that, a sedentary lifestyle. Sadly, most people think it's "normal" to live that way. If someone was to eat differently from the average American, they look at you as if you're a hippie or a health fanatic. Eating at least a partial raw diet or cooking from scratch, considering if lots of veggies & fruits are being eaten is the way to eat for optimal health. Some people think I'm weird because I choose to eat and live healthy and I don't care.
